Rogers Park is one of Chicago’s most diverse neighborhoods and one of the last affordable enclaves on the north lakefront. More than 80 languages are spoken on its colorful streets, which host dense high-rises, mid-sized apartment and condo buildings and single-family homes, some of them quite grand. Rogers Park is the northern gateway to Chicago, bounded roughly by the lake on the east, Devon Avenue (6400 N) on the south, Ridge Boulevard (2200-1800 W) on the west and Howard Street (7600 N) on the north.
At the end of the 19th century Rogers Park had a very suburban feel, dominated by sprawling houses on large lots. The opening of the Northwestern Elevated Railroad at the Howard Station in 1908 caused a jump in population which created a need for multi-unit dwellings, while the construction of single-family homes all but ceased.
There was steady construction of multi-unit dwellings during the first part of the 20th century. The majority of newer housing was built between 1960 and 1979. Over the years there have been a large number of condo conversions. Many of those conversions over the last twenty years have been “gut rehabs,” which include all new mechanical systems. Several side streets west of Sheridan Road are dominated by historic single-family homes.
